Jesus Ocon what an incredible c*nt. And I thought Sergio Perez was bad..

Max was sanctioned with two days of social labor because of his encounter with Ocon after the race.

 

https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/verstappen-ocon-community-service-brazil/3212401/

 

I can't really defend Ocon for his silly attempt at overtaking while being one lap behind but Max really needs to calm down. This isn't NASCAR. He will get to win countless races in the future, and surely one WDC at least. Ocon, otherwise he might have just killed his future right there, even more considering he doesn't have a seat for the next year. He wouldn't be the first driver to lose everything for messing with a Red Bull.

 

Race was pretty good otherwise but even I have to admit that I wish Max had won instead. Leclerc is huge, he showed great pace from the qualyfing session when he passed to Q3 when his team did not expect it.

Imagine if Verstappen would've come from a bigger country, Britain or Germany. The press would've been calling for the immediate firing of Ocon right now. I'm glad Ocon has had Perez as a teammate, because he genuinely deserved to get taken out by a teammate all those times retrospecively..

Please stop. I get that the Dutch are glad to have a driver to root for, but this is plainly ridiculous. The only person really defending Ocon's move is Ocon himself. That being said, Verstappen behaving the way he did was about as stupid as Ocon's move on him. 

 

And for anyone trying to bring up Piquet, Senna or Schumacher, what they did was pretty bad too. Although I do understand Schumacher's reaction at Spa '98 because of how badly that could have gone.

I get that it is 2018 and we do not get to publicly behave like humans anymore, but that is a normal response if someone runs you off the track to cost you a GP, and then gives you a sly smile if you ask him what is up.

Please, stop. Yeah, I get it, he was angry he got taken out. I would have been furious as well. But I wouldn't resort to physical pushing unless I was defending myself. All Max did was make himself look like the petulant child many people have been accusing him of being.

Well, it is a case of excess political correctness if men cannot solve issues among one another like men have always done. As it turns out Max is a top driver and Ocon is just a c*nting punk.

Right, so should we also start clubbing each other to death, jousting with lances or revolver duels are well? This is the stupidest thing I've read today, but yeah, I'm probably the idiot here for thinking I'd meet a non-salty Dutch fan. You want a good example of how Max should have reacted? Take a look at why his father hasn't said much. And how all that went.

Wonder how Colombians reacted when Verstappen Sr. ruined Montoya's race at this same track seventeen years ago.

Forget that, f*cking look at Montoya's response. Absolutely classy as f*ck.

 

The only one even justified in reacting the way he did was Michael Schumacher because that could have gone so horribly wrong.

I remember Colombians have murdered one of their national team players for making an own goal at the world cup, so I think they probably didn't take it very well.

I seen that this morning, brutal.

 

Her tweet about it seemed really calm, like she'd just scraped her car in a car park.

Show's how damn secure these cars have become over the years. Photographers on the side of the track were also sooo lucky. The car got just enough air to go above them. This could have been oh so much worse.
